I just submitted my application for grad school. It went something like this:
Why do you want to come to graduate school? I have worked really hard for seven years and will now TOTALLY appreciate the life of a student - way way more than I did before. That whole 'youth is wasted on the young' thing? College is totally wasted on undergrads.
Why should we let you in? I am really smart. And also funny. AND also pretty.
What do you want to learn? I want to learn all about computers so that I can then learn about brains.
Anything else? Um... please pay me to be there? Kthnx.
This is foolproof. Grad school, here I come.
